"The Bachelor" (8:00-10:00 p.m.)

Facing "The Voice" and CBS' first-run comedy block, ABC's "The Bachelor" grew its audience from its first hour to its second hour, beating out Fox's dramas in head-to-head competition from 8:00-10:00 p.m. by an even wider margin this week of 1.3 million viewers (8.0 million vs. 6.7 million) and by 19% in Adults 18-49 (2.5/6 vs. 2.1/6).

A note about increasing DVR penetration and year-to-year rating comparisons: Year-to-year rating comparisons based on the Live + Same Day data stream are distorted by the level of DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample, which has jumped up to 43% currently, from 39% at the same point in 2011. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which may not be reflected in the overnight next day numbers. The only truly valid year-to-year comparison would be one based on the Live + 7 Day metric, once those stats are released by Nielsen.
